While we often focus our impact on the value of people, it is undeniable that environmental impact is inexorably intertwined in the story.
We believe our stewardship of the Earth has far reaching effects, both for us and for our future generations. As a certified B-Corporation, Parker Clay remains committed to upholding the highest standards of environmental practices, both here in the US and in Ethiopia.
It is to this end we are honored to be participating in the Green Legacy Challenge, started by Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, aimed at planting 5 billion trees this year to tackle climate change.
Our team in Ethiopia has committed to planting 5,000 trees, and our employees were excited to get started as we planted our first 200 trees near a riverside in Addis Ababa on June 9.
Stay tuned for further updates as we work together to combat climate change and leave the Earth a little better than we found it.
